Saurus 2.6 is downward-compatible with all previous versions. All existing song-projects and patches can be loaded without any further steps necessary. They will benefit from the enhanced sound-quality.


New features:

Tooltips and Drag&Drop info can be hidden in the config section
Added Digital Signatures for the installers on PC
Added Notarisation for the installers on Mac
Support for Code-Signing on the Mac, since newer hosts may require it to be able to run plugins
Compatibility with MacOS Catalina
Completely new AudioUnit interface
A double-click on a knob resets in to the default value (Mac)


Enhacements:

PC and Mac version are loading faster
Chorus sounds smoother
Delay and PingPong sound more harmonic
Tube-distortion is more clear and supports oversampling
Menus are bigger
Check-marks in the list-selectors show the currently selected item
Workaround for a well-known bug in Apple's AU-manager: It is not longer necessary to reboot the Mac to detect the plugin
Better compatibility with Windows 10
Several small enhancements in the GUI
Slightly warmer sound
Saurus.pdf and .cfg files are not longer stored in plugin-directory
SaurusLog.txt is not longer created (Mac)


New features and enhancements (standalone-version for PC):

Added a recorder that can export your jam-session to a wav-file
The BPM-rate can be changed
Added a soft-clipping-algorithm with low harmonic distortion
The current patch can be saved on exit and is reloaded automatically on start
MME-driver support
Midi-through support with output-routing
Added Midi-velocity-curves with multipoint-splines
Optional Midi-transposition with up to +-48 semitones
Optional Midi-channel-filtering
The current BPM-rate, CPU-load and volume is shown on the top-panel
Tooltips are shown on the top-panel
Lower latency for the sound-card drivers
More responsive GUI with 120 Hz refresh-rate for smooth knob movements


Fixes:

Fixed a compatibility problem with some hosts where automation was not recorded correctly
Fixed a possible crash on loading the GUI
Cubase did display an incorrect plugin-version
Fixed two rarely appearing crashes on FL Studio Mac
Fixed a rarely appearing problem when envelope-parameters were not updated correctly
Fixed a rarely appearing crash in Reaper when ESC was pressed while a tooltip was shown
Fixed a problem where the demo could output garbage after the time has been running out
Fixed a bug where low frequencies were missing in the left channel


Changes:

32 bit on Mac is not longer supported. If you still use it, install Saurus 2.5 instead.
MacOS 10.7 is the minimum requirement now. If you use 10.6 or 10.5, install Saurus 2.5 instead.
